Not exactly. I suggest you to use current SVN version. It is pretty
stable. I hope to release it pretty soon.
The main reason is describe here:

The short version: Indexing Suite V2 was reworked and now you don't
need to patch Boost libraries and Py++ does all the work.

No, the Py++ you use, assumes that you installed indexing suite V2 to
the location you specified.
